BitNami is an open source software portal with a twist. All the software is packaged up into discrete installation bundles called ‘stacks’ which run in their own space and can be uninstalled just by deleting the files/folders. This makes it super easy for someone to install and test an open source program, like say WordPress or Drupal, on their local machine before going for a full on server install. It’s a great idea, which deserves to get more air play.
We’d like to make it easier for you to try the latest releases of popular open source software, so we’ve introduced a new Beta Corner section of our site. In the Beta Corner, you’ll find the latest beta releases of the applications we’re packaging. Just like the rest of our BitNami Stacks, the Beta Stacks are pre-configured and self-contained. You can download the stacks, install the application, test out the new features and then uninstall in just a click or two when you are done.
